colleagues, if a house dem came to you and said, what should i do here? should i run on obama care or kind of hide and move away from it, what would your advice? >> we own it but we have to be all in on improving it. i have a contrarian view, the american people know the health care debate is over, that we've got to make this work. the real issue is going to be the economy. the average wages of working americans declined in the past ten years, how do rewe restore growth in the pocket books not just in the stock market for the american people? we've got to lean in on that and start addressing the concerns of parents trying to send their kids to college, get them jobs. retirement security, these are things that have been put on the side and it's really a discredit that congress is focusing on middle class concerns. >> congressman, to that point, we're seeing a rising movement across the country in support of raising the minimum wage, something that republicans and congress seem to have no interest in doing. but are you hearing from constituents that that's a concern to them? do you thin

really see is people's views are pretty stuck on this law and called obama care. some republicans like it and a lot of republicans don't like it and a lot of democrats do like it. i'm not sure it will change for a long time. in fact, the white house's real hope is people stop thinking about the political issue at all and become engrained in politics the way medicare or social security is where it's really hard to take away benefits. >> that's pretty interesting the thing ari put up. >> i learned something today. >> tour'e, we may have to call it romney care again and see -- >> that would definitely work. >> peter alexander and perry bacon and ari, thank you very much. >> francis wilkin son on healing the wounds of obama care, the first monday in december and your home for the holidays in "the cycle." as a working mom of two young boys life could be hectic. angie's list saves me a lot of time. after reading all the reviews i know i'm making the right choice. online or on the phone, we help you hire right the first time. with honest reviews on over 720 local services. keeping up wit
